Times proves Up to the task
Times Up showed great reserves of courage to secure back-to-back renewals of the Speedy Services Doncaster Cup.
Now in the care of Ed Dunlop after the trainer's father John retired, the 3/1 shot was settled towards the rear of the field by Ryan Moore but entered the fray surprisingly early.
Times Up passed High Jinx with a couple of furlongs to go, but James Fanshawe's 2/1 favourite would not go away and fought him all the way to the line to finish a length and a quarter behind.
"It was a really messy race and I kind of had to go when I did," said Moore.
"I was just trying to save him when he got there but he dug deep when I asked him."
